Journal page and inchie

Hi All. Thank you for your visit to Jumbled Crafts and I hope you like what I have made for today. Off to the dentist for me and Vic and lots more appointments in the next few weeks-yuk!

At Art Journal Journey the theme of Architecture is attracting some wonderful artistic entries and it is always inspiring to see all of them

I decided to have a go at a different kind of painting for me. I have been looking at lots of types of painting and wanted to try something new to me. I usually try to make things look more like a photograph but this time I just went with what my heart told me to do and it really felt great. It is painted in acrylics and drawn in white pen afterwards. Thanks to Valerie and Susi I have learnt so much about the various techniques and the enjoyment of painting.

Every Inchie Monday are having yoghurt this week

Not very original from me but I was at loss to think of anything else for yoghurt

Here are all of my inchies sewn together up until the end of September-I left the corners white to add 2015 to them when it is all finished.
 Hope you have a great week

Love Chrissie xx

Love all the inchies, they look good together. Have a good week, hope the dentist doesn't annoy you too much, my appointments are now finished except for a check up in December! Hugs, Valerie

  6. Your painting of the bridge is tremendous with a lot of atmosphere, and I like the way you have used white to paint the detail, that's very effective. It's a super entry for the theme.

  8. Quite agree, what else can you do with yoghurt. Great inchie display, I'm not sure how to display my sewn ones. Love the journal page.

  10. Great Painting ... love that you used white pen to outline. Really stands out. May I ask what bridge this is? The perspective in this painting is a difficult one and you have done very well. ADORE your inchies and they look fabulous all together. Can't imagine painting that small!! Have a great day. xoDonna

      Not really sure which bridge it is supposed to be as I based it on many I have seen here and there.

      Love Chrissie xx

  23. I love your painting! It has energy and mystery, I imagine a bit of fog, maybe winter...
    And as always, I'm impressed with your latest inchie, they do look good all together!
    Commiserations for the many dentist appointments, thankfully it's not everyday for me but pretty much every week, and I'm fed up to the back teeth (intentional pun there...) xx
